DAVID Norris will return to full training next week.

Ipswich Town's midfielder has not featured since the opening day of the season, when he damaged his knee at Coventry. But he is now champing at the bit to get back into action.

Manager Roy Keane revealed at this morning's press conference: "David Norris will be back next week.

"I will be trying to arrange a practise match on the training ground for him. There aren't any reserves games coming up, and it's sometimes difficult to arrange friendlies during a busy December.

"So we might have to have a game between ourselves.
